Trend Analysis:

The national average for a gallon of gas is up three cents over the past week and is now at $3.85. This latest price increase comes after an uptick in gas demand and crude oil prices staying above $80 per barrel. Today’s national average is 29 cents more than a month ago but 10 cents less than a year ago.

According to new data from the Energy Information Administration (EIA), gas demand jumped from 8.84 to 9.30 million barrels per day last week. Meanwhile, total domestic gasoline stocks decreased from 219.1 to 216.4 million barrels. Higher demand, amid tighter supply, has helped to keep pump prices elevated.

At the close of Wednesday’s formal trading session, West Texas Intermediate increased by $1.48 to settle at $84.40. The price of oil has not been this high since mid-April 2023. Prices have increased amid market optimism that oil demand will be more robust than expected during this half of 2023 and into 2024. Additionally, the EIA reported that total domestic commercial crude inventories increased from 439.8 to 445.6 million barrels.
